[DYSU] Challenge #87 - School Time

It's crazy how Labor Day is coming up and that means the close of summer and it's time to think about Fall, Halloween, bump up the oven, and definitely think about Christmas gifts & what's crafty...I don't even know if I can get myself to think about that yet, without having Halloween & Thanksgiving solidly under my belt!

This week we're dealing with another season: Back to School. Yep - it's true. All over my twitter feed, the blogs and in my neighborhood, it's time for kids to return to school. Time to hunker down and hit the books. So, kiddies, study hard, so that you can have a fabulous job, so that you can buy lots of lovely crafty supplies (or enable what hobby you may have ;)

School Rocks
Stamps: (School Girl) Melonheadz Illustrating
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Smokey Shadow) Papertrey Ink; (Off to School) Fancy Pants
Ink: N/A
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; 
(Stickles - Xmas Red) Ranger; (Off to School - Cards, Design Embellishments) Fancy Pants; (Thread - White) Gütermann

This school girl is very adorable, ain't she? I decided to pull out some Fancy Pants to compliment this image. And since I was determined to use the "School Rocks" I lifted the color combo from there. Perfect - because if you know me, I have a thing for aqua and red ;) A fun element is using the "Student" definition to give the base of the card some fun "trim" along the base. Everything else is adhere on dimensionals, including the "School Rocks" label and the kraft graph paper panel with the girl. A little bit of messy stitching was necessary for anchoring the little arrow that was too cute not to use up. Anyways, here another close look on the cute little girl!

School Rocks

Hope it tickles. Do you have kids that are back to school? Is it a relief to be back in a routine? Make sure to check out the other DYSU girls' creation and leave them some love. This week we were discussing how many amazing DYSU players we have and how we love to leave you a comment to let you know how much we love your creations. We'd love to hear if we tickle your creative bone, too :)

On a last note, if you're a regular reader, don't forget to answer the survey in the top right panel. You have a little less than 2 days left ... And thank you to all that have participated! Toodles...

Total cool geworden. Gefällt mir sehr gut.

Hoffe dir geht es gut. Wir hatten etwas stress, aber auch eine schöne Zeit.

Seit einer Woche geht auch unsere Motte in den Kindergarten. Die Kleine macht es prima. Der Große ist auch ganz begeistert jetzt mit seiner Schwester zusammen im Kindergarten zu sein.

Dir noch einen wunderbaren Tag.

Liebe Grüße aus dem gerade sonnig werdenden Uelzen, ines

Love that little gal image, and your using the definition was so imaginative! Cute! And I know I'm late, but just to add a 15th response, I just found out that I love a lot of Vietnamese dishes. Discovered an old restaurant in Old Town Glendale, Arizona that is to die for!!! My number one, though, is still Italian. Give me pasta anytime!
